The MSST 2020 Mass Storage Conference has issued its Call for Papers. The event will be held May 4-8, 2020 at Santa Clara University, with the Research Track taking place May 7 and 8.

MSST 2020, as is our tradition, will focus on distributed storage system technologies, including persistent memory, new memory technologies, long-term data retention (tape, optical disks…), solid state storage (flash, MRAM, RRAM…), software-defined storage, OS- and file-system technologies, cloud storage, big data, and data centers (private and public). The conference focused on current challenges and future trends in storage technologies. MSST 2020 will include a day of tutorials, two days of invited papers, and two days of peer-reviewed research papers. The conference will be held, once again, on the beautiful campus of Santa Clara University, in the heart of Silicon Valley.

The Research Program Committee requests the submission of research papers on the implementation, design, and analysis of file and storage systems. Specific areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Exascale storage architecture and design
  • Parallel and distributed file systems
  • Designs of integrating parallel programming and distributed storage systems • Storage security and privacy
  • Storage provenance
  • Scalable metadata management
  • Techniques for building extremely scalable and distributed storage systems • Cloud storage systems and global-scale storage
  • Performance modeling and analysis of storage systems
  • Experiences with real-world systems and data storage challenges
  • Data protection and recovery
  • Long term archiving, data preservation and management
  • Data compression and deduplication
  • Storage for virtualized environments
  • File systems
  • Tiered storage
  • Storage virtualization
  • Networked storage architectures
  • New storage APIs: object storage, key-value stores, and others
  • I/O stacks for low-latency storage devices
  • Alternative Flash Translation Layers
  • Storage class memory devices and systems
  • New memory technologies

Submissions are due February 20, 2020.
